Review for Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness, Inc., Farmington, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In fall of 2011 I began I PhD program for which I had a full fellowship. Due to reasons relating to my chronic illness, I took a leave of absence from school. I was wanting to know more about my legal rights if I could press the school to give me a half time fellowship and stipend. Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness researched my situation and gave me the scoop - basically there is not legal precedent and the the terms of the fellowship dictate full time status is required. Additionally APCI provided me information relating to health insurance since I lost my benefits when I withdrew from school and got denied from a regular independent plan. Also, in the midst of search for employment for myself I realized I was giving out too much information to potential employers and APCI gave me invaluable information about presenting myself, and not my chronic illness on job applications and interviews. Overall in 2012 this organization has had a substantial impact on my life during some difficult times for myself. It is a blessing to find a such a wealth of information relating to the legal ins and outs of living with chronic illness!
